Preparation

Halve zucchini crosswise; cut each piece lengthwise into scant 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices. In large bowl, toss zucchini, green onions, 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the oil and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each of the salt and pepper.

In another large bowl, whisk together lemon rind and juice and remaining oil, salt and pepper; set aside.

Place zucchini on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until tender-crisp, 5 minutes. Add to dressing. Place green onions on grill; close lid and grill, turning once, until tender, 4 minutes. Let cool slightly. Slice green onions thinly; add to dressing along with parsley. Toss to coat. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours.)

Sprinkle salad with feta cheese.
